The Gauldrons Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is the latest release from Douglas Laing & Co completing their Regional Malt Range.
This release promises to be a real winner!
The Gauldrons Campbeltown Malt Scotch Whisky tells the story of the eponymous dark, stormy coves on Campbeltown’s west shores, and literally means “Bay of Storms"
But it’s not just the dark storm clouds gathering out in the Atlantic that set the pulse racing here and make the “hairs on the back of your neck” stand on end…
As you step onto The Gauldrons’ fine, clean sand, you also step back in time.
Over yonder is where a spider building his web with great patience but great difficulty inspired King Robert the Bruce to try, try and try again, having been defeated by his enemies. All around, you can sense the ghosts of the long lost distilleries that once proudly proclaimed Campbeltown Scotland’s Whisky capital.
On the nose detect a dry saltiness with sweet cereal and a late hint of gentle peat smoke.
The palate is initially dry (beachy and maritime) warming to crunched sugar, barley and oak.
The warmingly spiced finish brings puffs of smoke and rock pools with a dark sugar sweetness.
